Report: Ambulance wait times increasing in Metro Vancouver
from The Vancouver Sun
Metro Vancouver firefighters are waiting significantly longer for an ambulance to arrive on scene for routine medical calls following changes to the B.C. Ambulance emergency response system, according to a report by University of Fraser Valley professor Martha Dow. Dow's analysis for the Surrey Fire Department, which was presented to Metro Vancouver mayors, suggests it confirmed the ambulance service's assertion that the changes would result in faster response times for more urgent cases.
